Optimal exchange dates: Year 2

Planning your exchange: Both PHYS20008 Human Physiology and PHYS20009 Research-Based Physiology are available in Semester 1 or Semester 2. Both subjects can be taken concurrently, therefore students could go on exchange in either Semester 1 or Semester 2 and take a selection of Science Electives/Breadth subjects.
